new york city. caller: good morning. what you just read in the article, it makes the case why religious institutions ought not to be tax-exempt and get all the tax breaks that they do. they are using their tax breaks to hire lawyers that are costing the taxpayers even more money to basically just have a normal secular society. this issue of birth control, the rest of the world is laughing at us that we are even controverting over it. it should not even be an issue on the table. again, the tax-exempt status for religious institutions, i do not know if there are organizations that are trying to repeal this tax-exempt status, but i never really heard of a program on c- span about it, but these organizations, these religious institutions -- it is the tax breaks they get. host: nick from fairview, tennessee. on the independent line. caller: this is a ploy. socialists like the kennedys and obama, they will vilify -- if they cannot get it right, kruschev said, we will take two steps forward, and one step backward. we no longer live under a constitutional republic. liberals claim that

. we can have a toy ooze city that looks cool. if all this ignores that all of these types of solutions, not a single study show they reduce gun violence or accidents. studies by -- i don't think anyone calls this partisan, they did one of these studies and papers and books and exhaustive research and could not find these sort of gun control measures did anything other than make politicians feel good. at the end of the day, this is about mental illness, it about keeping guns away from kids and felonies living with you and things like that. indeed, in colorado after columbine passed are allegations some called gun rights they have things such as increased tort liability of negligent storage of guns, strengthening restrictions on straw purchases. also, when something is designated a gun-free zone it is a gun-free zone with armed guards at the intenses instead of putting just stickers on the wall. fundamentally, the right to carry. this will reach the supreme court in the next couple of years maybe the next year. it protects the individual rights to keep and bear arms. what does bear arms

is another theme. of course this is a political town. this is the capitol city and has been the seat of government since the founding 403 years ago. and so the exercise of political power and the development of public policy is another theme. the history of santa fe is distinctive. for one thing, santa fe became a u.s. territory in 1848. and it was a territory for a very long time. the country and washington were reluctant to make santa fe a state. that eventually happened in 1912. new mexico existed as a territory for so long, in someso many ways doesn't seem to fit the rest of the country. and in fact, santa fe proudly, for a long, long time, has described itself as the city different. santa fe was -- and new mexico were explored by the spanish, coming from the south to the north. not from anglos coming from the east to the west. that's one difference. this community that's closely tied to the catholic church, priests accompanied spanish settlers on their way north and establishment of the church and establishment of the community of santa fe are inseparable. of course, this is-was

speaking, the largest city close to us was 300 miles away, that being san antonio. on the mexican side, it's monterrey, mexico, 2 1/2 hours away. we grew up as an independent culture, the border culture. so both the mexican side and the american side, we've always thought of ourselves as one community. we don't think of ourselves as two different nations, like the nation thinks today. after 9/11, that changed. prior to 9/11, we went over there for lunch. we went over there for socializing. people come over. in fact, my home community of mcallen, texas, the business community can increase twofold because much of monterrey comes over to go shopping. that changed because the border got hardened, not only from law enforcement perspective, but the cartels came in. if you want to cross the border illegally, you literally have to go through the cartels in order to get across. so life has changed. many of the wealthy and upper middle class have moved to texas. they no longer feel safe in mexico. >> interesting. >> so there's a brain drain that's occurring. we, in turn, are prospering. their money

measures that we still do have people crossing in the 1900 mile border. there is no city in the country that is perfectly safe. there is a real penchant on how you're just spending money for very diminishing returns. >> the obama administration has done more than any other prior administration. our border today, we are spending over $18 billion just last year alone in the interior and in the border. that is more than all federal, criminal law enforcement agencies combined. more than the fbi, the dea, aft, secret service of course i mean, you name it. that is pretty incredible. and we are currently at net zero unlawful migration from mexico. here is the piece left undone, actually, there has been no path to citizenship. there is no road map, there are no legal mechanisms from people who are either currently in the united states to become citizens, the fact that they may have been here five, ten, 15, 20 years. or for family members to come to the u.s. through lawful means without waiting a decade or two decades. >> jessica, on that point, your organization is very dedicated to staunching
